Ria Holly loves pushing her toys around, running on her wheel, she likes going under bridge like its a tunnel instead of a bridge!

belties Ours never plays with her toys either . She likes to run through the tunnels that connect her bins ,dig in her dig box , wheel like crazy,and crawl under her little blankets. They all have different things they like to do. You just have to try things till you find what they like to do.

Aj.t If she’s showing signs of over heating or you can’t regulate her enclosure temperature well, a small ceramic tile can be put in as a cooling stone. I personally wouldn’t think it necessary if she’s not showing signs or if you’re controlling the temperature well, but it shouldn’t cause any negative effects being in there.

I love to let Christina run all around my entire basement while I’m showering, doing desk work, or even watching tv. Giving your hog access to a while room can be very stimulating for them and give them adequate exercise! Just be sure there’s nothing on the ground (including dust if you have hardwood floors) and no open or out of reach gaps/spaces. “Hedgehog proof” it 🙂

Another form of enrichment is dietary. You could spread her kibble around her enclosure one night to stimulate her foraging senses or even make a dig box and add worms, or in my case, frozen crickets. Those possibilities are endless. Once, I stuffed fleece strips in one end of a paper towel roll, poured her dry diet in the other side, and closed the other side up with more fleece. It’s a great way for them to work for their food!

Hi, what are some good enrichment toys for hogs? My hedgie has a wheel and several little balls and pom poms but she doesn't seem to play with them. She runs on her wheel all night though Any ideas? Also, is it okay to put a flat, cold stone in her cage to keep her cool?
